About the neighbourhood
Douglas Cottage is located in the heart of Chester city centre which has a number of things to see and do to keep everyone busy. If you fancy browsing the high street stores the excellent shopping facilities offer something for everyone. Enjoy a relaxing meal or drink, take a walk and explore the fantastic eye-catching scenery. One of the most impressive attractions is the Rows, two-tier shopping galleries which date from the Middle Ages.

The Groves and the river Dee are just two minutes walk away, great for walks on the meadows and river cruises. Located just yards away are The famous Chester City Baths, one of the oldest public city baths in the Country, and Grosvenor Park with its miniature railway set in the beautiful park surroundings. Also nearby is the Roman amphitheatre.
